"The media profit from fear mongering through sensationalized headlines. Nothing gets viewers to tune in to a news program like fear: fear of war, fear of disease, fear of death, fear of harm coming to loved ones." - Benjamin Radford in Media Myths: How Journalists, Activists, and Advertisers Mislead Us

I SO agree with this quote. It makes my not want to even read the news. It's like Twain said: "If you don't read the newspapers you're uninformed. If you do read the newpapers, you're misinformed."
